“Just write something down.”

That’s the mantra going through my head since I signed up for this blog. I thought starting one—let alone sustaining one—would be a piece of cake. After all, I’m a writer and editor by trade. I work with words for a living. But not so much here. The perfectionist in me wants my first splash to be memorable. So will I toil for the perfect post? I hope not.

My goal in this forum is to chronicle my life. Writing coaches teach you to journal to get and keep the creative juices flowing. This will be my journal, except instead of locking and stowing it under my pillow at night, I’m opening it up for anyone in the world to see.

And if you’re reading this, enjoy.
